Bill Jr. Jr. is an indie folk band based in East Vancouver. This three to nine piece band delivers the rich sound and rhythm of a hollow body baritone guitar (Russell Gendron) nuanced and idiosyncratic drumming, warm and driving bass lines, washed out trumpet, epic string sections and familial vocal harmonies.
Based in East Vancouver since 2016, Bill Jr. Jr. has recently teamed up with Dan Nettles of Kenosha Kid and ultra-producer and bassist extraordinaire Daniel McNamara to create their newest album “Homebody”. Recorded in Athens, GA “Homebody” will be released on vinyl in 2019.
